Run for the Bridges

February 21, 2012 at 12:57pm By: Mr. T Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Fans of Wilderness Park should keep March 17th circled on their calendars for the upcoming Run for the Bridges benefit trail run. A marathon, half-marathon, and 6-mile run will be held to raise proceeds for the various bridges that need repair work throughout Wilderness Parks. The registration deadline is March 7th.

The run starts at the day camp area at 1st and Park, and will then go south past Old Cheney. Timing chips will be donated by the Lincoln Track Club. All entrants will receive a string bag for participating in the run. 

This sounds like a pretty cool, low-key event. Even though there will be timing, in events like this walkers are encouraged, and I imagine that many of the runners will join just to help benefit the cause and not for competitive reasons. Hopefully by then the trails will be reasonably dry!

A friend and I are walking the 6 mile.  It’s a great cause and perfect time to stretch out the legs after being dormant over the winter.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing it at a light running pace and not a race pace. Its a great cause and should be fun yet low-key. Get some podcast listening done at the same time. Score!
